of lottery going on in washington. they're playing with our money. we're going to find out shortly if two parties can agree on a way to keep this country from falling off what is referred to for good reason as a "fiscal cliff,". there were sporadic outbreaks of bipartisanship, no real compromise yet. but the issues are tough and will affect every single american before it is over. we'll take a closer look on how it could impact medicare in just a moment. first we want to begin with white house political director chuck todd, good evening. on where things stand at the negotiating table, good evening >> reporter: today, washington had the feel of a full-blown election campaign. there were props. there were gimmicks and heated political rhetoric from one end of pennsylvania avenue to the other, all over the so-called fiscal cliff. redeploying the campaign image, the president surrounded himself with what he called average middle class families, to ramp up the pressure on the republicans. >> if congress does nothing, every family in america will see their taxes automatically go up at the begin
to washington. and now today to them it seems so close they can taste it. because although john kerry is still a senator from massachusetts, after his very high-profile role in the obama campaign and speaking gig at the democratic national convention, after that john kerry's name was put forward as one possibility, a leading possibility to succeed hillary clinton as secretary of state. that, of course, would result in him leaving his senate seat after all, which would mean there would be a temporary ae re placement appointed and then there would have to be another special election to fill the rest of his term where scott brown would be the republican nominee again. which would be the best chance of putting a republican in the senate any time soon. which is why republicans got so excited when john kerry's name was floated. his name was floated along with one other name for that job. republican senators were very, very quick to point out that they really prefer john kerry to be the nominee for secretary of state. a ringing endorsement for john kerry from republicans in washington. because if joh

hate politics and washington so much? >> she hated it because she was made fun of. the ladies of washington did not like the way she dressed, did not like how her hair was done. they thought she was a rube. after all, he did not gain acceptance -- he was shunned by almost all of washington and most of the senators because he came from a corrupt background. they let her now at one point that you do not wear seersucker if you are a first lady. she responded, what is wrong with seersucker? it was a series of incidents like that that made her hate washington. she would only stay there a minimal number of months in the year when harry was senator. even when he became president, she did not like washington. the grandson has been just put together a collection of letters he found in the house in books. he claims she loved being a senator's wife. i put that in the book -- the book was finished but i managed to get it in the notes. i did not find that she really enjoyed being in washington. so we have a conundrum. >> do you still live on lincoln road in lincoln, massachusetts? >> i sti
the brunt of this battle and they should not defend taxpayers but the spending interests in washington, strikes me as odd. the effort by some to get entitlement reform, the democrats have said heck no and harry reid has said it ain't happening, and they ought to look at that, rather than trying to raise taxes to pay for obama's bigger government. >>neil: do you hear it is spreading? we have chatted about this before. you were open when we chatted in washington, to talk about the cliff cliff, to not equateing bringing in causes or tax loopholes and the like and closing them off, your point was as long as it leads eventually to revamping of the tax code, but this goes beyond that, they have no quid pro quo and they are offering this, you argue, what? >>guest: well, there are two ways you can damage the economy. one is to increase marginal tax rates, everyone knows the small business groups, it would kill 700,000 jobs off the bat, probably worse. the other thing is to eliminate $1 trillion, not talking about a few deductions, but talking about $1 trillion worth of deductions and credits w
to be realistically kept. any deal made today in washington is amended next week and the week after or not kept. i mean, it's like you make your deal right now and you hope that even in last -- it lasts through the year. am i right? >> well, the only way to guarantee deals you pass it into law. then it's a lot harder to change them. and my only point is, you know, if we had a game, and every time the term fiscal cliff came up people had to donate a dollar to something, you'd be amazed in the course of a week or two how often this has been repeated like a mantra. i compared to a great essay by tom wolf in which people chanted and made noise in order to get their way. i think we ought to recognize this entire fiscal cliff is an artificial invention of washington, created by people in the congress and the presidency, and it can be broken down by them into a series of steps that can be taken without having to be rushed into one gigantic last-minute, little understood, with no hearings, one vote up or down, i think it's a terrible way to govern the united states. >> greta: well, the sequestration deadl
on the philosophy i just put forth? joining us now from washington mary katharine ham and juan williams both fox news analysts. on paper where would you rather live, juan. >> on paper i would have to agree with you. it sounds like texas is the place. again, that spirit of freedom. i must say when you said that thing about people not wearing helmets on motorcycles it, reminded me of the whole healthcare debate. i don't want to have to pay when that person goes smoosh on the street. >> bill: that's a legitimate point that people who are irresponsible and hurt themselves oftentimes then wind up in a long-term care facility and the taxpayer has to pick it up. however, you have got to decide, juan and i want you to decide right now. which is worse? the government imposing a lifestyle upon you or basically, look, you are 21 years old and up, by the way under 21 in texas have to wear the helmet. 21 years old and up, you know, can you do what you want to do which is the greater good? for you? >> well, for me, again, i understand what you are saying about this notion of personal freedom. especially when
washington. it's wednesday, november 28, 2012. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. right to my first read of the morning. so is washington just running out the clock until about ten days before christmas when everyone smells the jet fuel and gets ready to cut a deal to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff? some days it feels that way. the president is stepping up his pr effort today delivering remarks this morning surrounded by, quote, middle class americans who will see their taxes go up if no deal is done. he'll sit down with more than a dozen ceos hater today including several who were prominent supporters of mitt romney. the white house even has a new hash tag called #pound#my2k. i asked jay carney whether this is just a game of running out the clock until the real negotiations begin in late december. is everything just killing time until the deadline comes? >> no. >> it seems everybody -- >> it doesn't feel like killing time. >> killing time until the final week and the jet fumes of the airport and then everybody will sit down and hammer this out. >> well, look, here's a fact, the p
now, "bbc world news america." >> this is "bbc world news america" reporting from washington. the scam which brought down the c.i.a. director spread further. now it is the actions of the top u.s. commander in afghanistan called into question. failing its mandate, the bbc gains access into an internal report showing the united nations failed to protect civilians in sri lanka. >> they left actually at the moment the population needed them more than ever. the government wanted them out of the way essentially because they didn't want anyone to see what was happening. >> running the world in just a week. a marathon man on a mission that boo leave most of us in the dust. welcome to our viewers on public television in america and around the globe. bizarre. it is the only way to describe the scandal that has already claimed the job of the c.i.a. director and now has america's top commander in afghanistan under investigation. both are strange enough, but how do you explain the addition of a shirtless f.b.i. agent and 30,000 e-mails. here is the latest. >> it is a washington drama with
'donnell is in washington. so is former cia director david petraeus, meeting with members of congress this morning. >> he has agreed to answer questions about the attacks that killed the u.s. ambassador to libya and margaret brennan is at the u.s. capitol where closed door hearings are happening at an undisclosed underground location. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: david petraeus told intelligence committee members that the cia knew the assault on the u.s. mission in benghazi was a terrorist attack within the first 24 hours. he says the cia shared that information with the white house, the state department and other agencies. intell committee member congressman peter king told reporters following the hearing that this is a different story than what petraeus told the same committee just two days after the attack when it was described as a result of mob violence. >> general petraeus' testimony today was that from the start he had told us that this was a terrorist attack, that there were terrorists involved it was thought. i told him i had a very different recollection of that. the clearer official st
people here in washington are calling the fiscal cliff. today, we have new proof that people across the country not only are aware of what's going on, they're very, very worried. our new poll shows 68% say the country will face either a crisis or major problems if the cuts in taxes aren't avoided. and a whopping 77% say their personal financial situation will be affected by a failure to solve the fiscal cliff problem. despite this nationwide sense of urgency, there's only a little talk of compromise right now as lawmakers return to washington. our congressional correspondent, kate bolduan, has been working her sources on capitol hill and what's going on. stakes are enormous right now. what's going on? >> they were away for a week. staff was supposed to be working. but lawmakers are arriving back in town with no real whisper of an imminent breakthrough at the moment to avoid this looming series of tax increases and spending cuts that could very well damage the economy. but the air of compromise among some notable republicans is definitely grabbing attention. the republicans' comments
to avoid that fiscal cliff. tracy pots joins us from washington with all the details. good morning to you. >> good morning, everyone. a number of high level but individual meetings scheduled here today on capitol hill with really just a handful of lawmakers who could have a big impact on your paycheck. tim giter in and rob neighbors bring the deficit cutting plan to capitol hill today. >> reporter: negotiators are meeting with boehner and top democrats. they heard the plan wednesday at the white house. at least one thinks there could be a deal here. >> if i were involved in the negotiations like this and everybody was purporting to be where they are, i would say that an agreement is reachable. >> i'm hopeful. it wouldn't put me anywhere near optimistic. >> reporter: one conservative is suggesting that while negotiations continue, congress should stop tax rates going up on the middle class now. >> we're not going to raise taxes on those people. i think we should make that clear to everybody. >> reporter: bottom line, no deal yet. both sides are still talking. and both sides signalling that
and washington state. you can see the next one is already making its way onshore, and we are looking at heavy rain, especially across northern california. you can see a closer look. that band of heavy rain just to the west of northern california, that's going to move onshore, and we are going to see a series of these rounds of heavier pockets of rain move in, especially this afternoon. winds will get gusty as well. we had a lot of delays yesterday because of the bad weather out in california. we will most likely see more of those today. look at some of the expected rainfall totals over the next 48 hours. we could end up with some parts of northern california, just north of redding, possibly picking up more than a foot of rainfall out of this system, and it does look like that will continue for most of the week. lynn? >> dylan, thanks so much. >>> and for the rest of us, it was another day of facing the fiscal cliff. white house negotiators head to capitol hill today. they're going to sit down with congressional leaders and talk about specific proposals from both sides for an agreement to avoi
washington has not pushed both sides hard enough. >> the peace process yielded by the united states has helped nothing for the palestinians. at the end of the day, this is about land. >> reporter: a major concern for israel is that the palestinians could now use their new status to press the united nations criminal court to press the occupiers in the territory. today, they are threatening to punish the palestinians by withholding u.s. aid, brian. >> andrea mitchell in our washington bureau tonight, thank you. >>> and then there was that lunch at the white house today, the president and mitt romney who arrived at a side door, walked in and sat down with the man who got the job he wanted so badly. kristen welker has more on the story. at the white house with more on the sit-down between two former rivals, good evening. >> reporter: brian, good evening to you. this lunch was really more about optics than substance. and mostly, it was striking a tone of bipartisanship after a decisive campaign. formerly bitter rivals, mitt romney and president obama, hoping to show they have put past differ

things done in washington -- supporters are gathering now -- to bring america to the white house and in so doing, basically get the american people to ratify the change that the president would like to see happen on capitol hill. >> yeah. this is one of the lessons he's learned from the obama care battle where he had no outside game. he basically told the left and all the folks who had supported him during the 2008 campaign, sit down, we've got this, we're going to do it through rahm emanuel, legislative wheeling and dealing. that didn't work so great. the other side flooded the capitol with people carrying guns so now he's mobilizing his base to try to get this done. >> and let us hear him mobilize that base. the president speaking at the white house. >> thank you so much. thank you, everybody. please have a seat. thank you. thank you very much. everybody, please have a seat. except you guys. don't sit down. well, good morning, everybody. >> good morning. >> you know, there's been a lot of talk here in washington about the deadlines we're facing on taxes and deficits. these dead
